Best Places to Visit During Laos Classic Tours

Regrettably overshadowed by its more renowned neighboring countries, landlocked Laos continues to be a captivating gem within Southeast Asia. Situated amidst the turmoil of the two Indochina wars and isolated from the rest of the world for an extended period, this nation still exudes a serene and rustic allure, along with a remarkably relaxed and amiable culture. Here, we present our selection of the must-visit destinations for Laos classic holidays.

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang, the former royal capital, holds a place of great intrigue, magic, and romance, making it one of the most captivating cities in Asia. This city has rightfully earned recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a true treasure trove, adorned with splendid ancient temples and adorned with serene streets graced by elegant colonial buildings.

Nestled between the majestic Mount Phu Si and the flowing Mekong River, the city’s centerpiece is the Royal Palace Museum. This museum offers a captivating glimpse into the history of the region, showcasing its rich heritage. A short distance southwest of the Royal Palace lies Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham, a remarkable temple dating back to the early 19th century. This sacred place was once the residence of the Sangkhalat, the supreme patriarch of Buddhism in Laos, adding to its historical significance.

Wat Xieng Thong

Wat Xieng Thong

Wat Xieng Thong

Preserved from wars, fires, and excessive renovations, the jewel of temple-laden Luang Prabang boasts both elegance and historical significance. Positioned near the tip of the peninsula, overlooking the Mekong River, stands Luang Prabang’s most renowned temple, Wat Xieng Thong. This temple, characterized by its gracefully sweeping roofs, epitomizes the classic architectural style of Luang Prabang.

Stepping inside the sim, one’s gaze is drawn to the eight robust pillars adorned with intricate gold stenciling, guiding the eyes towards the serene golden Buddha images at the rear and upward to the roof adorned with dhamma wheels. On the exterior of the sim, at the rear, a captivating mosaic of the Tree of Life is masterfully crafted against a backdrop of deep red. Throughout the temple, the splendid combination of gold and deep red creates an atmosphere that exudes regal allure, captivating all who enter.

Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng

Situated conveniently between Vientiane and Luang Prabang, the charming village of Vang Vieng serves as an ideal stopover point for travelers journeying between these two towns. Nestled alongside the picturesque Nam Song River, amidst a breathtaking landscape adorned with limestone karsts, Vang Vieng initially gained popularity as a popular destination among backpackers.

However, it quickly earned a reputation as a vibrant party hub, reminiscent of Thai beach resorts, hosting lively full-moon celebrations that seemed transported to the heart of landlocked Laos. Presently, the primary allure lies in the surrounding countryside, and the town has transformed into an appealing and laid-back base for outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors can partake in activities such as rock climbing, cycling tours, kayaking, and other outdoor adventures while enjoying the pleasant ambiance of boutique accommodations and a variety of good dining options.

Pha That Luang

Pha That Luang - Laos

Pha That Luang – Laos

At sunset, the most significant religious edifice in the country reveals its true splendor, as the golden stupa radiates a captivating glow in the diminishing daylight. Pha That Luang holds immense spiritual significance for the Laos people, symbolizing their independence and sovereignty. It is a peculiar and exotic structure that seamlessly blends the elements of a Buddhist temple with the functional aspects of a fortress.

Even today, the grand monument maintains its fortress-like appearance. Enclosed within high walls, and adorned with tiny windows, it evokes the imagery of a medieval stronghold. Access is granted through elaborately gilded red-lacquer doors, further enhancing the impression of an ancient fortress. However, as one approach, the sacred essence of the structure becomes unmistakable, evident in the abundant religious symbolism and imagery that adorns its intricate details.

Wat Phou

Wat Phou

Wat Phou

Standing as the most evocative Khmer ruin beyond the borders of Cambodia, this sprawling mountainside complex traces its origins from the sixth to twelfth centuries. The awe-inspiring complex of Wat Phou, meaning “Mountain Temple,” rests upon a site that has held sacred significance for at least three distinct cultures. Central to the attraction of this location for these civilizations is the uniquely shaped mountain known as Phu Pasak, which rises majestically behind the temple.

Upon entering the complex, one encounters the remnants of palaces constructed by the Champasak royalty during the waning years of their dynasty. These palaces provided a vantage point from which the rulers observed the annual festivities held during the full moon of the third lunar month. A grand promenade, aligned in an east-west direction, leads visitors between two rectangular baray, or bathing ponds, and guides them towards the base of the middle level, setting the stage for further exploration.

The trip was long and we had an unforgettable experience. We will definitely use this travel agency for our next time. Thank you so much !

Excellent Vietnam/Cambodia Experience!

Our trip to Vietnam/Cambodia started in 2019 then the world shut down! We finally went on our bucket list trip in February 2023! Alex was instrumental in ensuring our trip was a 5 star experience! From the beginning of the planning to the end of our trip all details were documented and when we asked for a change during the trip Alex was quick to ensure the change was completed in a timely manner. Everything from the tour guides seeing so many wonderful sites in Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sapa (Vietnam) to many temples, Angkor Wat in Cambodia. WOW! is all I have to say we had such a great time with IDC Travel's organization. I would highly recommend booking a trip with IDC and I will again in the near future. Thank you!

Another Great Experience!

We booked with IDC Travel again after a great first experience organizing a multicity golf tour in Vietnam April 2018. This time Alex helped us organize transportation and tours for a multi country golf trip (Thailand and Singapore) when countries first opened up for quarantine free travel in SE Asia May 2022. This was not an easy task and he was able to organize everything seamlessly! Would definitely recommend him to anyone! Will be using them again in the future.

Services surpassed our expectations

View on TripAdvisor Reviewed by Quang Q B, February 1, 2023
Our group of 6 adults booked a private tour with IDC in February 2023 to visit North Vietnam and Phu Quoc Island. One thing that makes IDC different from other travel agencies is the prompt and courteous response from Alex and his staff. We always got a text or phone back within the next hours. Our requests for accommodation in Sapa, Yen Tu, and Hanoi were difficult, but IDC did it without a glitch. The arrangements for car, guide, driver, restaurant suggestions and domestic air travel were perfect and satisfied our demands. We had used several travel agencies in Vietnam in previous trips, but we could say that IDC surpasses our expectations. We can recommend IDC without hesitation.

Great fun for the family!
